A great day.......

Sunday saw me sitting at the cricket watching sporty play in his last junior representative match. The team played well and they bowled out the Blue Mountains with overs to spare - it was a very exciting game!

I did manage to do in a little stitching for this pretty little pincushion whilst watching the game.....

and after dinner I cut all the little squares for the top and bottom.
Tonight I hope to put it all together, before my kids head back to school tomorrow and the homework and after school activities begin!!

A little bit of stitching..........

Today I'm out of my sewing room and off to watch Sporty in his Rep Cricket Semi Final against the Blue Mountains. I get a little nervous taking my SKoW out of the house (in case I lose something), so I have decided to start on the little pin cushion out of Anni's 'My favourite things' book.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and finding some time to do something special

Catching up................

 I have been lucky enough to have had a couple of days off work this week and I have spent it with my sewing machine. All the family knew where to find me if they needed anything (usually food!)

This is my progress so far........................

 Sorry it's not the best photo - I was struggling to find somewhere to hang it
(thanks Chicka for a loan of your bed)

I'm hoping that means I can be marked off for December?

I'm off to finish January

Finally a start........

Over the past few nights I had my trusty rotary cutter working flat out. I have finally decided what fabric's to put where and labeled them all ready to go.

I have decided to go with the needle turn applique technique.
I started with the patty cakes.....

Next I completed the umbrella....

I'm really enjoying watching everyone's progress on this quilt

Getting back to normal........

I know I'm a little late but ' Happy New Year'.  I hope 2012 is a great year for everyone.  

Now, I been lurking around blogland for the past few days, seeing what everyone has been up to,
but what have I been up too....... 

December saw me madly trying to get my ' In my garden' top finished before my friend Sam (a cupful of stitches) came to visit.  
I am happy to say that I managed to put the last few stitches on the outer boarder, just a few hours before she arrived - I work best under pressure.... lol.

Whilst Sam was here we had a shopping trip over to eveyone's favourite shop 'Hatched & Patched'.  
I wandered around for ages looking at all the lovely things and trying to decide what to spend my Christmas money on.
I finally decided on the following bits & pieces........... 

But they will have to wait! I'm off to make a start on my version of the SKoW quilt. 

Until Next Time - Happy Stitching xox
